Bonjour! In my last article I defended both Cinderella and Snow White. Now I'm going to defend Aurora and Ariel.
Most people either have a love or hate relationship with Aurora. I love her, but she's not my favourite. Everyone complains that she has an underdeveloped personality and she does nothing, but most of all, people are frustrated about the fact that her eyes change colour.
In contrast, I don't believe she has an underdeveloped personality at all. Out of all the Disney Princesses, she has the least screen-time, (I think it was eighteen minutes or something) and I think Disney did a pretty good job in developing her character in eighteen minutes. What do we know? She's friends with a lot of animals and they help her, she's kind to everybody, humble, surprised that she gets such a lovely birthday present, somewhat cautious of strangers, a day-dreamer, a good dancer and singer, graceful and charming and shy. She also hates the fact that she's suddenly a princess, and wouldn't you be too if you spent sixteen years believing you were this carefree peasant girl who picked berries and had all the freedom in the world?
